What's De Matter Suse Ann is from Phil. Rice's Correct Banjo Method, published in 1858. The second song is Hobson's Jig, taken from James Buckley's 1860 New Banjo Book. The last tune is called "Sich A Gettin' Upstairs," and also comes from the Rice method book.
As a side note, banjo players and Minstrel stars Phil. Rice and Tom Briggs had died just before the Instructors bearing their names were published. Historians think that James Buckley, of the famous Buckley family of minstrel performers, may have had a hand in the compilation of these tutors.
